    Top House Democrats on Sunday raised the prospect of impeachment or almost-certain prison time for President Donald Trump if it’s proved that he directed illegal hush-money payments to women, adding to the legal pressure on the president over the Russia investigation and other scandals. “There’s a very real prospect that on the day Donald Trump leaves office, the Justice Department may indict him, that he may be the first president in quite some time to face the real prospect of jail time,” said Rep. Adam Schiff, the incoming chairman of the House intelligence committee. “The bigger pardon question may come...

    She threatened to subpoena the son of the President in about a month because he trolled her.The son of President Trump is Donald Trump Jr. And the she is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The meme he trolled her with was genuinely humorous.“Why are you so afraid of socialism?” A more dowdy than generally portrayed Ocasio-Cortez has imposed over her picture.“Because Americans want to walk their dogs, not eat them,” says a superimposed quote over a picture of President Trump.It’s a solid troll! Incapable of laughing it off (which is likely why Trump Jr published it to begin with) Ocasio-Cortez retorted back:“I have noticed that...

    Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) argued Friday that federal prosecutors' latest filing in a case involving President Trump's former longtime attorney Michael Cohen means that Trump allegedly committed two felonies. Lieu, a member of the House Judiciary Committee and frequent Trump critic, told MSNBC's Chris Matthews on "Hardball" that "we have a sitting president of the United States who committed two felonies while running for president.”....

I just turned 29.” PHOTOG: “Happy birthday.” AOC: “Thank you! Thank you!” PHOTOG: “You can’t even run for president for another six years.” AOC: “No, not for a long time. Thank God. Although we’ve been joking that because the Equal Rights Amendment hasn’t been passed yet, the Constitution technically says he cannot run unless he’s 35. … So what we’ll do is we’ll force the Republican Party to pass the Equal Rights Amendment...

    Newly elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-MY) vowed to "mete out sweet revenge" in response to Donald Trump Jr. sharing a meme predicting that if her socialist views are implemented Americans would end up eating their dogs. "He may think he's clever mocking me," Ocasio-Cortez said, "but in another month I'll have the subpoena power I need to make his life a living Hell. On the specific topic of eating dogs, though, Junior is overlooking the positive impact that would have on mitigating global warming. So really, the joke is on him." In related news, Google advised journalist John Stossel that...

    Listen on YouTubeDemocratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Tom Perez on Wednesday complained that voters are influenced by what they hear in church on Sundays.  Perez claimed that Republicans have an advantage because “people buy” what they hear at church.“And we all have to make sure that we’re fluent in what’s happening across our ecosystem so we can come to each other’s defense because we need to build a bigger orchestra. They’ve had a big orchestra for some time and they’ve got the megaphones to amplify it, whether it’s Sinclair at the local level or Fox at the national level,” Perez...

    Conservatives must also take the political game as seriously as the leftists do. In this country, conservatives still outnumber liberals, but you would never know it by the voting tallies As Special Counsel Robert Mueller racks up the guilty pleas for minor infractions by supporters of President Trump unrelated to Russian Collusion and ignores the crimes committed by members of the FBI, DOJ, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, it should come as no surprise that Conservatives are playing in the wrong game. Even after Republicans won the White House, Senate and House of Representatives they acted as if...

    MeToo loudmouth and Bay Area Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris of California has gotten herself into yet another scrap, this one claiming she knew nothing about a $400,000 payoff for a sexual harassment case brought on by one of her top staffers. How very ironic, given how she stuck it to spotless Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh over sex harassment phony claims during his confirmation hearings and tried to make herself the figurehead for being sterling tough against sex harassment. The hypocrisy is thick. According to Fox News : A senior adviser to U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., resigned...

    About the only consensus to emerge from 2016 was that it was an extraordinarily unusual election cycle, from beginning to end. One aspect that differentiated the cycle from most in the recent past was the enormity of the Republican field. The primary season kicked off with so many GOP candidates that the debates had to be split into two broadcasts, with the lower-polling members of the field serving as a not-ready-for-prime-time opening act for the main debate. There was a lot of weeping and gnashing of teeth throughout Republican Land about the number of contenders for the title. The early...

    California looks like a lost cause for Republicans, given how Democrats clinched the midterm with a series of new laws.  Maybe no big deal, given that California has been a solid blue state for something like 20 years.  But are Americans aware of the potential for California vote-rigging to come to their states, making them so blue that no conservative will ever be able to win an election? A California political operative, Edward Ring, writing in American Greatness, lays out the coming spectacle: Three laws in particular combined to stack the deck against Republicans.  First came the Motor Voter law.  This meant that as soon...

    The whistleblower submission cited many of the same concerns as the internal legal reviews, but also alleged that evidence from foreign governments showed that some charity transactions were commercial in nature and therefore should have been taxed. The evidence amassed by the private investigators should give Congress plenty to explore at its hearing next week, and put the Trump Justice Department on the spot to answer what it has done to address concerns that the foundation’s lawyers raised and the private investigators uncovered. Quid pro quo donations, a culture of noncompliance, travel abuses and commingling of personal with charitable business...

As reported by far-Left Mother Jones, Rep. Mike Thompson, D-Calif., is ready to do the bidding of several anti-gun groups after meeting with representatives from Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Everytown for Gun Safety, the Center for American Progress, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, and Gabby Giffords’ group, among others. He asked what those groups wanted...

    On election night, the Republican Party lost 26 seats in the House, a serious erosion but not a catastrophic one. But two weeks later, seven races that had been called for Republicans switched and the Democrats were certified to have won. All seven were in California and no seats moved the other way — from blue to red. ... The state’s Democrats engineered a massive piece of legal fraud to jimmy the results. ... California sends ballots to every voter before Election Day, whether they request it or not. All the voter needs to do is to fill in his...

    . . . . “Trump represents everything they should be against,” said Bolin, who has switched from Southern Baptist to Episcopalian. He meant the fact that the president is a double-divorcee with a penchant for prevaricating, talking dirty and, apparently, adultery. Trump’s a Presbyterian. Presbyterians aren’t big on churchgoing; I know, I grew up one of the “Frozen Chosen.” It seems Trump seldom warms a pew. He evidently prefers Sunday golf to Sunday worship. Yet the president’s worldly pursuits on the sabbath also don’t seem to trouble the souls in his evangelical flock. Never mind that most of them are...

    For more than a year now, the media storyline on immigration has been as mindless and predictable as a Jim Acosta script. The talking points never change, it doesn’t matter what the story is. It could be the caravan. Or family separation. Sanctuary cities. Even MS-13. The details are irrelevant. Immigration is always good, whether it’s legal or not because immigrants are always good.-- It doesn’t matter where they’re from or how much English they speak, or how they’ve lived their lives or what they’ve done before. Immigrants are the heart of America. By definition, they’re impressive, much more impressive...

    You’ve been a sharp political prognosticator over the years. So can I start by asking for a prediction. What will happen in 2020 in America? Will Hillary Clinton run again? If the economy continues strong, Trump will be reelected. The Democrats (my party) have been in chaos since the 2016 election and have no coherent message except Trump hatred. Screechy Elizabeth Warren has never had a snowball’s chance in hell to appeal beyond upper-middle-class professionals of her glossy stripe. To win in the nation’s broad midsection, the Democratic nominee will need to project steadiness, substance, and warmth. I’ve been looking...

    Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who will represent New York in Congress in January, has once again proven she’s more interested in misleading Americans about single-payer health care than having an honest debate that’s based on the facts.On Sunday, Ocasio-Cortez engaged in a brief Twitter sparring match with Jim Hanson, the president of the Security Studies Group. The exchange began after Hanson commented that under government-managed health care, “Democrat Socialist overlords” would decide “who will live and who will die,” adding “#DeathPanels rock,” at the end of his message.Ocasio-Cortez, a vocal supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) “Medicare for All” proposal—a plan that...

    Election night was painful for California Republicans, but it was nothing compared to the slow torture we’ve endured ever since. For three agonizing weeks, Republicans have watched registrars update their tallies with late absentee and provisional ballots. From Orange County to the Bay Area, it’s the same story playing out with different candidates: Democrats flipping seats with late ballots. First, Mimi Walters. Then, Young Kim. Now, David Valadao. It’s not unusual for late absentee and provisional ballots to break against Republicans. What is unusual is the scale of the carnage. As of this writing, Republicans lost election night leads for...

    Back on election night, Republicans were heading for victories in California. Three weeks later, Paul Ryan lamented, “we lost every close race.” For the outgoing House Speaker, it “defies logic,” and quite possibly election law as well. This year California legalized “ballot harvesting,” which empowers a third party to collect ballots and deliver them to election officials. The more than 250,000 election day vote-by-mail drop-offs were also the result of ballot harvesting. And the Election Integrity Project California found discrepancies in the totals of poll and mail ballots cited by the state and four counties in southern California. “It shouldn’t...
